    There is a lot of room. I think the factory location would probably be the starboard side, just to the front of the engine if you have a single engine. There's a ton of empty, solid fiberglass to choose from there and it should all perform fairly well. Just look on the outside of the boat for chines and stay somewhat between them, they are not very large but better safe than sorry.

        Ram, there is often some confusion between the terms "Thru Hull" and "Shoot Thru" transducers.

        Are you installing an actual Thru-Hull transducer? Or are you going to epoxy a "shoot thru" transducer.

        If "Thru-Hull", I don't believe that Bayliner was providing a dedicated area for a thru hull transducers back in 1987. In which case you bore the hole, mount the ducer with it's faring unit, and use a Teak Wood or composite wedge at the interior.

        NOTE: if you trailer this boat, plan your thru-hull transducer location as to not interfere with your trailer bunks and/or roller system.
